Good Morning

We have been testing the first fully electric off highway dump truck for New Zealand at the factory. The truck will be operating here in January.

XCMG is ramping up production of heavy electric trucks and they are now built on the main assembly line.

The order for the electric tippers to a Shenzhen client has now been increased to 1000 units and there were plenty around the factory.

Most truckies would get quite upset if someone tagged their brand new tractor, but this guy was pretty good.

This is the first long wheel base E300 fitted with a tail lift. We can now offer these from 6,000kg GVM (class one license) to 10,500kg GVM.

XCMG are testing a driver-less version of the 120 tonne dump truck.

A smaller autonomous truck at the factory.

I was in Fiji last week to hand over the Shantui SD22R refuse dozer to HG Leach (Fiji) at the Suva landfill.

Hui Yang, the Shantui trainer, talking the Leach operators and technicians through the machine. Hui has been doing this for nearly 20 years in 40 countries.

A 4WD Multitask scissor lifts with stabilizing legs delivered to Broad Acre Farms in Waipu. While not a full rough terrain they can get around most building sites with ease.

A new quick deployment rescue truck from XCMG. The rear digger arm can be fitted with a variety of cutting and crushing tools.

One of the 4000 tonne lift crawler crane is now in Saudi Arabia and recently placed this scrubbing tower at a petrochemical plant. The tower is 102m long and weighs 1926 tonne. The lift took 6 hours.

XCMG have sold two of the 700 tonne excavators to a coal mining client. It takes fifteen semi trailers to deliver each machine.

A fully electric 25 tonne forklift. The 320kW battery can be charged in one hour for eight hours continuous use.
